Are you a caring person that likes helping others? Do you hate it when spam and harrassing posts drive people away from your favorite forum? We are looking for volunteer moderators for our forums currently.

What are the responsibilities of a forum moderator?

1. Foster a sense of community, caring and responsiveness in your assigned forum(s). This can be done easily by getting involved in discussions, responding to posts (especially those no one else reponds to), and offering your support.

2. Monitor your forum for abusive posts, unauthorized spam or advertisements, copyright infringements, any sort of harrassment, and any other violations of the forum rules and edit, merge, move or delete posts that violate these rules (you will be granted access to the phpbb3 moderator control panel). Send warnings to members who repeatingly violate the forum rules.

3. Participate in the private Forum Moderator's forum. Only current moderator's have access to this forum, hidden at the bottom of the main forum listing. This is the place to post questions, concerns, problems, ask for help, get feedback and input from your fellow moderators. It is a good idea to visit this forum regularly to keep updated with changes in the forums.

How do I signup to become a moderator?

Once you have familiarized yourself with the forums and have read the forum rules, you are on your way to becoming a moderator. Preference in moderator applications is given to members that have been actively participating on the forums for awhile.

To apply, send your username, a short biography of yourself (including age, gender plus any additional background info you want to share with us) and the name of the forum or forums you want to moderate, along with the reason why you would make a contribution to that/these specific forum(s) to (please use the email subject: Forum Moderator Application).

However, to become a forum moderator the following restrictions apply:

1. Your age should be 20 or older
2. Your should have good writing skills
3. You should not have violated the forum rules in any case at any time
4. You should have a balanced character
5. You should allow, invite and consider different point of views in a discussion
6. You should have experience in using phpbb3 forum moderating tools

If your application is approved, the forum administrator will assign your member account moderator permissions and privileges.
